I found this book very well written. I could relate to most of the feelings of the main character. The book made me feel very grateful that I live in a time that I can escape such boring trappings. I don't feel that it is worth listening to the whole book just to be able to say " Thank God above I don't live back then."
There were a lot of battles and fights but very little else. If this is your thing, Great this is your book. I would like to see the setting more developed and the characters fleshed out. I had a hard time caring one way or the other about the characters. It was hard for me to even pay attention to the story. I listened to the whole thing thinking that with such a high rating there would be a redeeming value somewhere. I never found it but I admit my mind wandered a great deal while listening to this book.
This had a lot of good information, some of it interesting. It was a bit long for me. I found the beginning and ending the most interesting. I admit history is not usually my favorite.
Despite both my mother and husband recommending this book, for the first hour or so I thought it was dull. It never is exciting but it has a ring of truth to it. There are situations and feelings very well portrayed by the author. If you are looking for action and adventure this book is not for you. If you are interested in a familiar quiet life of sadness you may enjoy this book.
The only people I have been in contact with that had autism have been highly functional. I did find this book informative and if I had a child or student with autism, I would listen to this book again.
This book had a very good message. I might even listen to it again but it was very deep. I would listen to it for a while and then come back to it. I needed to stop and think about it. I didn't care for the accent with this book. It sounded too high brow. This was a book about a loving God.
Most Zombie books, even well written ones, get repetitious. End of the world setup, living try to get away from zombies, and lots of blood. Stony Mayhall had a bit of that but it was more from the zombies point of view. Not ALL zombies are all bad, a zombie with a heart of Gold.
I didn't read the printed version.
From a teacher's point of view, it came across realistic. I don't know that non-teachers would believe all we do.
I liked all the true teacher anecdotes.
No, maybe two sittings.
I found it insightful and enjoyed the true teaching experiences. I think most teachers would like this book but I don't know that others would believe it.
I did like hearing Mother Teresa speak her own words but at times it was hard to understand the recording.
There were many memorable sayings. Mother telling her listeners that they do not have to go anywhere to start loving and helping. Start where you are. We are not called to succeed but to be faithful.
I was inpressed that she served and even encouraged people of other faiths to pray within their own faith.
Some of her saying have been over used and this dated the book for me. However, there were still a lot of inspirational thoughts.
The book had some good and interesting information, but it was way too long and had too many statistics.
I would have condensed it.
Basic, ok, adequate.
I had to break up the book by listening to about 3 hours and then switching books for a while before going back to it. Many times I considered not finishing it.
